Can you believe it’s August already?? Some of you, I know, are getting ready for the new school year while some of us in the north have a little more summer left. I admit that after living in Florida most of my life, it’s a little weird to not go back to school until September. Not that I’m complaining; my family and I put together a summer bucket list, and we’ve been having a blast doing things like going to a chocolate factory,
visiting the grandparents in Alabama,
and picking our own berries.
I’m not sure we’re going to finish everything in the next few weeks, but we’ll do our best. My kids made up most of the list, and for some reason, critiques didn’t make the cut. But they’re on my own personal list, so
It’s Critiques 4 U Time!
~~CONTEST IS CLOSED~~
